r174/175 beta Preview Crash.

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Sun Aug 03, 2014 5:32 pm

Problem Description
Node Webkit, Chrome and IE all freeze or show a red bar on loading preview. Firefox works.

Attach a Capx
Game has copyrighted material, unable to upload.

Description of Capx
***

Steps to Reproduce Bug
    Open a large game to preview

Observed Result
The only one that shows the error is Node Webkit:
Uncaught node.js Error
Error: Failed to read the "selectionDirection" property from "HTMLInputElement": The input element's type ("file") does not support selection
at Error (native)
at HtmlImageElement.img_onerror:(http://***my network ip***/preview.js:1375:13

Expected Result
Preview to run like before :)

Affected Browsers
  • Chrome: (YES) Red Bar when it starts to load, then freezes near end.
  • FireFox: (NO) Game loads, runs like crap.
  • Internet Explorer: (YES) Blue bar when it loads then freezes near end.

Operating System and Service Pack
Windows 7 64-bit up to date

Construct 2 Version ID
Currently 173, errors occur on 174 and 175


It seems to be an issue with Preview Cache being disabled. Exporting the game works perfectly (on all browsers and node webkit which we really need). All versions before 174 work fine for preview. This is only happening with our large games, the small ones still work. All using same plugins etc etc etc.

Closing, nothing we can do without a .capx to investigate.

@Ashley, The game is too big and too much legal crap tied to it - Us uploading our games source code is no different than you uploading the source to C2! Is there a way to turn the cache back on? Since it's only in preview mode I'm having the issue it, only makes sense. Or maybe in a future build have the option to turn the preview cache on or off? We're stuck at 173 until that is resolved and this answer is completely unacceptable considering I've paid for the business licence and you didn't even try to talk about the issue.

We are running a business here too you know.

I can have a Non-disclosure form written up for you to sign and upload the capx to a private ftp.
